(OTCQB: PRLX) (''Parallax'' or the ''Company''), an outcome-driven connected healthcare company, announces that Pete Scobell has joined the Company's Advisory Board. Mr. Scobell brings Parallax strong leadership skills and telehealth marketing experience.

''I've gained from my experience working with some amazing leaders in active duty with the SEAL teams and at Rally under the tutelage of Grant and his vision for the healthcare space, which was proven out by the sale of Rally to a major health insurance company for several billion dollars,'' said Scobell. ''Parallax is providing highly creative real time solutions for real people. Patients are being given the power to help guide and control their own health care and Parallax facilitates that empowerment by seamlessly connecting providers and patients, resulting in better outcomes for patient care. I'm excited to be joining this team to help bring Parallax into people's lives,'' said Scobell.
Scobell spent 17 years on active duty with the U.S. Navy and is a graduate of the United States Naval Academy.

Upon leaving the Navy he worked extensively with the Intrepid Fallen Hero's Fund, raising money to build multiple Traumatic Brain Injury Centers around the country to treat active duty soldiers, sailors and Marines. Pete was also instrumental in opening the Marcus Institute for Brain Health at the University of Colorado, a facility dedicated to treating veterans and athletes for traumatic brain injury.
