CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Nov. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Ken Herron, Chief Marketing Executive at Online Buddies Inc., the parent company of MANHUNT, announced today that David S. Novak of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will join the team at Online Buddies, Inc. as the site's first Senior Public Health Strategist. MANHUNT, the leading social networking site for gay men, with 2,000,000 members worldwide, is the first social networking site to address the ever-increasing spread of sexually transmitted infections via the Internet by funding a health position. No other site, including Facebook and Myspace, has a similar staff position.

In his new role, Mr. Novak will oversee sexual health-related issues pertaining to MANHUNT and its members through the site's new online health center, MANHUNT Cares (http://www.MANHUNTCares.net). Mr. Novak will act as MANHUNT's spokesperson and ambassador to the CDC and will work hand-in-hand with state health departments and community-based organizations to assist them in notifying men who may have been exposed to an STI.

"Newly infected individuals share screen names of men possibly exposed to the infection with trained public health professionals who then e-mail the members, without ever revealing the source."

David S. Novak joins MANHUNT after five years in government agencies. He has authored and co-authored several important Internet partner notification publications including the STD Directors Guide to Working with MANHUNT; Acceptability of an Internet-Based Partner Notifica
