Heating up the capitol city

Miami's basketball champs are all over Washington, D.C. today. The Miami Heat were to be feted by President Bush at the White House this afternoon, and Alonzo Mourning, a member of the 2006 NBA championship team, is heading to the Hill tonight to join legislators and kidney care advocates in support of new kidney care policy.

Mourning, a kidney transplant recipient, will join Kidney Care Partners - an alliance of patient advocates and care providers - to introduce the Kidney Care Quality and Education Act, which would establish patient education and disease management programs.

The team plays the Washington Wizards Wednesday night.
