GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - A Loma woman will shake hands with President Barack Obama today after being the first winner of the SAVE Award Contest.

Nancy Fitchner, an employee at the VA Hospital in Grand Junction, will meet privately with the President after submitting an idea to the Securing Americans Value and Efficiency program.

Fitchner suggested veterans leaving VA hospitals across the country should be able to take the medicine they've been using home with them instead of having it thrown away when they're discharged. The medicine won't be wasted and special disposal of the medication won't be required.
