This paper summarizes five key ideas that emerged from multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder activities of HESI's Environmental Epidemiology for Risk Assessment Committee that could help improve how human data inform quantitative health risk assessment and decision making. It highlights the needs for concerted efforts from academia, decision-makers, industry, journal editors, funding agencies, and advocacy groups to increase inter-disciplinary communication, collaboration and training, foster transparency and data sharing, and diversify funding sources to make epidemiology more central to quantitative human health risk assessment.
