SPRINGFIELD — When a patient at Baystate Medical Center has a gunshot wound, it’s likely that Dr. Kristina Kramer’s team treats them. And after they leave the operating table, a program she started can help them move forward. Kramer is the medical director for Better Tomorrow, a new violence intervention program at Baystate Health. It’s a partnership with Roca, a nonprofit focused on at-risk young adults, to try to reduce gun violence.
