The Company welcomes the participation of David Lasseter on the Advisory Board. Mr. Lasseter is the founder of Horizons Global Solutions, LLC, where he provides consulting and advisory solutions to clients, specializing in national security, law enforcement, intelligence, and biotechnology.

Mark White, CEO of Nexalin Technology stated, “The establishment of our Military & Government Advisory Board is quite timely as we advance the rollout of our technology within the government sector. In fact, the federal budget for mental health services continues to grow, as illustrated by the President’s 2024 federal budget request, which included approximately $16.6 billion in mental health services for veterans alone, an increase from $15 billion in the previous year. Towards this end, I am honored to welcome David to lead our new Advisory Board, given his impressive track record, as well as the breadth and depth of his relationships within the DOD, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Health & Human Services, and other public agencies, which should be invaluable as we seek to engage partnerships with various government agencies. We look forward to leveraging his skill set in order to bring our new and drug-free therapy to active military personnel and veterans with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, anxiety, depression, insomnia, and other targeted indications. We believe that our neurostimulation devices have the potential to become a standard of care for treating mental health issues as they allow deeper penetration into the brain and provide enhanced patient response without adverse side effects.”
David Lasseter noted, “PTSD and other forms of mental illness have long been a major issue among our veterans and active military, not to mention the short and long-term effects of traumatic brain injury. We owe it to our nation’s heroes to provide them with the best treatments available to restore their well-being and dignity. After evaluating the extensive clinical data behind Nexalin’s drug-free and non-invasive deep brain stimulation devices, I truly believe this technology holds enormous promise. I look forward to working closely with Nexalin to advance the technology within the military and other agencies across the government sector to bring hope to countless numbers of individuals and their families impacted by these often debilitating conditions.”
