        Bedford’s Mended Hearts chapter has a heart for nurses. That’s why it gives scholarships each year to help out nursing students with their educational expenses. The chapter recently presented checks for $250 to two LPN students, Michelle Ravizza and Sara Welch, at a luncheon.

        Members also heard from Dr. David Alligood, director of Bedford Memorial Hospital’s emergency room and co-director of the hospital’s chest pain center. Dr. Alligood has spent the last 10 years at Bedford Memorial’s emergency room.
