RYDAL, Pa. (CBS) – A Montgomery County man is at a healthcare conference in Phoenix this week, launching a website designed to allow people to discreetly share their STD testing results with their partners.
“Only you can share your information,” says 23-year-old founder Ayal Feinberg of Rydal.

Feinberg says his U Should Know website is a confidential on-line STD status sharing service that allows college students and others to share the results of their sexually transmitted disease testing with their partners.
Feinberg says his research shows that STD’s are a major problem on college campuses, “I don’t believe our generation responds to 60-year-old women putting to condoms on bananas. I don’t believe a poster full of scary statistics works either. Technology, smart phones and Internet: this is my generation.”
Feinberg says he hopes to enlist the support of over 1,400 college healthcare providers at this week’s conference of the American College Health Association in Phoenix.
