Question on STM32L USART communication

I am using the STM32L1 Discovery Board (this one http://uk.farnell.com/stmicroelectronics/stm32l152c-disco/stm32l-discovery-eval-board/dp/2317987). I have written a program for USART communication on the two pins PB6 and PB7 (USART1_TX and USART1_RX respectively).
Is there any way to use the USB port of the board (the one for swd programming) to create a virtual COM for USART communication with my PC? Or the only way is to create a circuit with MAX232 (interface with PB6 and PB7 pins) and a serial connector?

Thanks.
